Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp

Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp
Recipe by Dragon

I just updated the photo of these amazing shrimp so I thought I'd repost it. ;)

These spicy and savoury shrimp are wonderful served with a salad or plain white rice. Me? I love them all on their own. Enjoy!

Serves: 2

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 onion, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes or 1/2 a red chili pepper, finely chopped
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 plum tomato, seeded, finely chopped
2 tablespoons dry white wine
20 medium-large shrimp
Salt & pepper
A splash of lemon juice
3 basil leaves, chiffonade (sliced thinly)
Lemon slices to garnish

Directions:

1. In a sauté pan over medium/high heat, combine the butter and olive oil. When the butter is melted, add the hot pepper flakes (or chili pepper) and onion. Sauté for 2 minutes or until the onions are softened.

2. Add the lemon zest, tomatoes, garlic and white wine. Sauté for another 2 minutes.

3. Add the shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper to taste. Add a splash of lemon juice. Cook for 1 minute more.

4. Transfer to warm plate and serve the shrimp topped with the basil chiffonade and lemon slices.
